It's not easy but not hard after a bit of learning... try tagtag.com for starters and there is a nifty program somehwere called WAPtor I used to use, I used it to learn WAP and it was a big help. Waptor helps format the page up for you (in WML code format, not WSIWYG so you kinda know what you are doing)

WAP2.0 is actually simplified HTML anyway, just don't stick tables in tables for use CSS etc.. too much for the little phones.

Yeah building your ownn wap site is pretty easy.

as above tagtag.com lots of info and you can buile a wap site in under 5 minutes.

Even better you can build and host your own.

Also if you do this on your own or hosted server be aware if the page doesnt disply and you know the coding is right check Apache Server Setup. When you access a "web page" using a PC based browser, the "web server" tells your PC browser what kind of document it should expect. This is done by using something called MIME-types. The common MIME type for a plain HTML document is "text/html". However, for a WAP micro browser, which cannot read HTML, the MIME type has to be different. So check MIME configuring on your Apache Server.

Here is a quick guide I came accross a while ago

Have fun
